  • How far along are you? Sometimes earlier in pregnancy once you have begun to feel the baby, it is normal to feel less movement depending on where baby is positioned. As you get further along and closer to delivery, baby has gotten pretty big and there is less space to move around. If you can still feel baby moving, even if not as much, that is a good sign that you shouldn't panic. It is worth mentioning to your doctor though.

  • He's probably just running out of room to move around. Even if you haven't gained weight it doesn't mean that your baby isn't growing. Try to drink a big tall glass of juice and lay down on your side in a quiet room.

  • In late pregnancy they have less room to move around, so more than likely what you are feeling is his lack of space to wiggle. If you're really worried pay attention to when you baby does move and record it in a notebook and present to you MW/OB next time you meet to see if they have any concerns about it.

  • I used to drink a huge glass of juice then rest....or try putting something cold on your belly--always got my babies moving :-)
